“Emotionally F**king Pissed” Media Blows Embargo and Lashes Out at Trump – “F*ck Him”

(Before It's News)

Most people who use social media have figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the government, for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

Just yesterday Trump called a summit of all the major mainstream media executives and anchors at Trump Tower.  While many expected the meeting to be an oppotunity to ask questions of the president-elect, the media elites apparently got the surprise of their lives when Trump spent the majority of the meeting attacking they’re blatant biased coverage the 2016 presidential elections referring to the room as a bunch of “dishonest, deceitful liars.”  One participant in the meeting described it as a f—ing firing squad” after “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said “I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….”  We suspect that was rather less cordial than they expected.

Despite the conversation being completely off the record, many of the “emotionally f—ing pissed” media anchors have decided to blow their embargoes and lash out at Trump.  According to one source interviewed by the New Yorker, the meeting at Trump Tower was “f—ing outrageous.”  The same source also questioned how he could remain impartial after the meeting saying “How can this not influence coverage?”…yes, because coverage was so impartial up until yesterday.

Another participant at the meeting said that Trump’s behavior was “totally inappropriate” and “f—ing outrageous.” The television people thought that they were being summoned to ask questions; Trump has not held a press conference since late July. Instead, they were subjected to a stream of insults and complaints—and not everyone absorbed it with pleasure.

“I have to tell you, I am emotionally f—ing pissed,” another participant said. “How can this not influence coverage? I am being totally honest with you. Toward the end of the campaign, it got to a point where I thought that the coverage was all about [Trump’s] flaws and problems. And that’s legit. But, I thought, O.K., let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. After the meeting today, though—and I am being human with you here—I think, F–k him! I know I am being emotional about it. And I know I will get over it in a couple of days after Thanksgiving. But I really am offended. This was unprecedented. Outrageous!”

Participants said that Trump did not raise his voice, but that he went on steadily at the start of the meeting about how he had been treated poorly. “It was all so Trump,” one said. “He is like this all the time. He’ll freeze you out and then be nice and humble and sort of want you to like him.”

“But he truly doesn’t seem to understand the First Amendment,” the source continued. “He doesn’t. He thinks we are supposed to say what he says and that’s it.”

And, as the eloquent Kellyanne Conway pointed out in her opening response last night on the Megyn Kelly show, negative reactions, like the one above, went a long way toward helping Trump win the presidency.

“Fairness is actually not having presumptive negativity written about you and always assuming the worst about you.  And I think that Donald Trump has faced an unprecedented avalanche of critical coverage when he was running and frankly i think, in part, he owes his victory to that.  There was a backlash against the elites, a backlash against those who were telling Americans what is important to them.”

What are the chances that the mainstream media figures out before 2020 that by relentlessly attacking Trump they’re actually helping him?

Here is our full coverage of the Trump “media summit” that was described by some as a “f—ing firing squad”:

Earlier today we reported that in a “summit” organized by Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, executives and anchors from the major US media outlets, including CNN president Jeff Zucker, ABC News president James Goldston, Fox News co-presidents Bill Shine and Jack Abernethy, and NBC News president Deborah Turness, visited Donald Trump at his Trump Tower penthouse for an off the record meeting.

Courtesy of the Post, we have a complete list of the participants at the Trump media meeting: the hour-long powwow included top execs from network and cable news channels. Among the attendees were NBC’s Deborah Turness, Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s James Goldston, George Stephanopoulos, David Muir and Martha Raddatz, CBS’ Norah O’Donnell John Dickerson, Charlie Rose, Christopher Isham and Gayle King, Fox News’ Bill Shine, Jack Abernethy, Jay Wallace, Suzanne Scott, MSNBC’s Phil Griffin and CNN’s Jeff Zucker and Erin Burnett.

The contents of what was discussed were initially unclear.

Now, according to the Post and Politico, we learn that the President-elect “exploded at media bigs in an off-the-record Trump Tower powow on Monday.”

It was like a f—ing firing squad,” one source told the Post.

According to the Post’s recound of the conversation, “Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed….”

“The meeting was a total disaster. The TV execs and anchors went in there thinking they would be discussing the access they would get to the Trump administration, but instead they got a Trump-style dressing down,” the source added. A second source confirmed the encounter.

The Post adds that “the meeting took place in a big board room and there were about 30 or 40 people, including the big news anchors from all the networks…”

“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong. He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was network of liars.

“Trump didn’t say Katy Tur by name, but talked about an NBC female correspondent who got it wrong, then he referred to a horrible network correspondent who cried when Hillary lost who hosted a debate – which was Martha Raddatz who was also in the room.

“Gayle did not stand up, but asked some question, ‘How do you propose we the media work with you?’ Chuck Todd asked some pretty pointed questions. David Muir asked how are you going to cope living in DC while your family is in NYC? It was a horrible meeting.”

Politico adds further details, according to which “Trump complained about photos of himself that NBC used that he found unflattering, the source said. Trump turned to NBC News President Deborah Turness at one point, the source said, and told her the network won’t run a nice picture of him, instead choosing “this picture of me,” as he made a face with a double chin. Turness replied that they had a “very nice” picture of him on their website at the moment.”

Amusingly, since the meeting was off the record, meaning the participants agreed not to talk about the substance of the conversations, it means they will most likely be unable to confirm or deny the Post’s report.

Politco’s recollection of events was slightly less dramatic:

The New York Post on Monday afternoon portrayed a much more heated meeting, including a quote from one source who said the encounter was “like a f–ing firing squad.” The Post also said Trump called CNN journalists “liars” and that they should be “ashamed.” The source who spoke with POLITICO characterized the meeting as less intense, and said the discussion included Trump expressing the possibility of a “reset” of the tumultuous relationship between the president-elect and the media and that all he wants is “fairness.”

Asked how he defines fairness by a network executive, Trump said simply, “The truth.” But aside from the few moments of contention in the beginning, the source said the meeting was largely substantive.

Politico also adds that Trump, flanked by chief of staff Reince Priebus and campaign manager Kellyanne Conway at the table, also expressed annoyance at the protective press pool and the complaints over him ditching the press when he went out to dinner last week with his family after reporters were advised he was in for the night. But Priebus assured the attendees that the protective press pool will be taken care of and it would all work out.

Other attendees at the meeting from Trump’s team included chief strategist Stephen Bannon, Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, spokesman Jason Miller, and Republican National Committee chief strategist and communications director Sean Spicer.

Asked for comment, Miller referred POLITICO to Conway’s comments to reporters after the meeting, in which she echoed the sentiments made in the meeting about turning over a new leaf with the media.

“There was no need to mend fences,” Conway said. “It was very cordial, very genial. But it was very candid and very honest. From my own perspective, it’s great to hit the reset button.”

Conway later on Monday hit back at the New York Post report. “He did not explode in anger,” she said.

While one can have a subjective interpretuation of the nuances at the meating, one thing was clear: Trump’s attempt at a ‘reset’ will be frowned at by the media which is not used to this kind of treatment, even if the “kindler, gentler” version of events as reported by Politico is accurate.

It also means that what has already been a conventional war between the various US media organizations and Trump, is likely about to go nuclear.

Most people who use social media have figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the government, for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

    • It may not be too long now and the MSM will be the DSM….

      The down stream media.

      They say the first casualty in war is the truth.

      These demons have been waging war on the populations of the world for far too long.

      They are lovers of the LIE and their father is the father of it!

      God BLESS the Cwhoreporate media the world over.

      • F*ck you Butt Cheesier, the Republic is bigger than you and your treasonous “Fake News” POS!

    • even if you are not a trump fan you gotta love the fact that he had the balls to do that. no one else has. he called a spade a spade and now they are butthurt

      • Yes, but what is this ‘butthurt’ thing? Can’t people save this kinda talk for their next gay pride parade?

  • I wish Trump left everyone of them with a pie – IN THE FACE!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • A big part of the problem is that these airheaded SHILL Bozos actually BELIEVE their own absolute Bullshit and they really think that they are ALL “Star”quality personalities and on par with Hollywierd actors and other actual celebrities as well as the politicians that they are “reporting” stories about !!! They are All airheaded “Talking Heads” that can’t even think for themselves and without their scripts and teleprompters they’d ALL be completely LOST !!!

  • Media deserved it

  • ”We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” William Casey, Director CIA (Quote from internal staff meeting notes 1981).

  • msm is now a side show and everyone knows it.
    direct media is where it’s at and trump uses that well.
    these msm liars all failed at what they did and they don’t have the influence they once did.

  • The majority of these MSM fucks are of course sacks of crap Jews, with the rest being liberal “shabbos goy” traitors. I have NO sympathy for these scum buckets. I wish they had faced an ACTUAL f-ing firing squad!!! :mad:

  • Must agree…. I do question the possibility that Trump’s son Barron might go to school with sons or grandsons of the leftstream media midgets and will it damage his personal friendships???? Even when you are honest and sincere with good intensions there are always some evil doers that will spite you and smite you.

  • This is why the American public loves Trump. Donald is right to tell them off. Now just release news to alternative news sites.

  • El

    I think most of the Liberal Elite owned Media People should be in jail for all the lies they have told and the blatant attempt to control the outcome of the election. They also did this because someone has ordered them to focus on the election , not on what is really happening behind the scenes. The Elite had it all figured out, Obama would declare an Economic State of Emergency , Declare Marshall Law, and takeover as King or Dictator. I wish I could have been in that room, I would have added a few things!. If they don’t pay for it now, they soon will, because our side will win.

  • They may find themselves on Trump’s “disposition matrix”. Something they failed to report on when Obama was killing US citizens without a trial.

    Well boys and girls executive orders stand, until they are rescinded. Heard any reports about Trump doing away with the disposition matrix?

    Because you probably are that ignorant I’ll explain. In 2013 the Gaurdian reported.

    “The most extremist power any political leader can assert is the power to target his own citizens for execution without any charges or due process, far from any battlefield. The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. In September 2011, it killed US citizen Anwar Awlaki in a drone strike in Yemen, along with US citizen Samir Khan, and then, in circumstances that are still unexplained, two weeks later killed Awlaki’s 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman with a separate drone strike in Yemen.
    Since then, senior Obama officials including Attorney General Eric Holder and John Brennan, Obama’s top terrorism adviser and his current nominee to lead the CIA, have explicitly argued that the president is and should be vested with this power. Meanwhile, a Washington Post article from October reported that the administration is formally institutionalizing this president’s power to decide who dies under the Orwellian title “disposition matrix”.

    https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/feb/05/obama-kill-list-doj-memo

    So what exactly are the media heads going to do again? They didn’t report the story above. They’ve had several years to do so. They might want to consider that if it could happen to a 16 year old US citizen it could happen to anyone, even a fat political shill.

    • Do you think he was the first puppet president of the us inc. to do this?
